Thanks for asking! When exiting the SlingPlayer application it disconnects from your Slingbox. When opening it later, it will show the main menu of the SlingPlayer application and you would need to reconnect.
If you have any other questions, feel free to respond or call in at 1-877-467-5464. We are open seven days a week, from 10:00am to 10:00pm EST.
